These Alice Milligan papers were found scattered throughout the P.S. O'Hegarty acquisition and were probably acquired at various times. An envelope marked “Alice Milligan. Varia” contained 7 letters and 5 poems. Other poems were in a spring binder. There is also a sketchbook attributed to Alice Milligan by an annotation on the first page.
